You can even try speed dating with a Library – just perfect for busy people on the go! Come along and try our recommended apps and find your favourite online freebies.
Or simply join in the fun of our bookish matchmaking and let your library play matchmaker and connect you to your next read. This is your opportunity to uncover something new! Our librarians have been busy selecting great reads and wrapping them up. Each mystery book will have a short description and age indicator to help you find a book to match your interests.
